‘Global Project’ – ‘Ghana 2018’.
Kent Scouts is partnering with African Adventures in the summer of 2018 to provide an opportunity to visit the Volta Region of Ghana West Africa, to volunteer with the local community and work at schools in developing areas.
African Adventures is one of the UK’s leading volunteer travel organisations specialising in educational trips and they give young people in the UK an unparalleled opportunity to experience a new culture whilst dedicating their time to truly worthwhile causes. African Adventures’ partner schools in Ghana provide an education for children from underprivileged backgrounds. Participants will support a school by coaching sport, engaging in community work, and classroom teaching.
At this stage the trip cost is estimated to be in the region of £2500 and will be all-inclusive. This cost will cover flights, transport, meals, accommodation, adventure activities, travel insurance, visas, as well as extensive pre-departure support, orientation and volunteer resources. Participants need only budget separately for any UK medical expenses such as vaccinations and malaria prophylaxis and a small amount spending money.
Most participants fundraise in order to generate funds for their trip and many successfully fundraise 100% of their trip costs. Participants are encouraged to undertake individual fundraising opportunities where possible. African Adventures provide a free downloadable Fundraising Guide on their website which provides ideas and inspiration to help participants raise the necessary amount to travel.
African Adventures is ATOL and ABTA protected and has a 100% safety record. They are also a member of the School Travel Forum, are DofE accredited and have been awarded the Learning outside the Classroom quality badge.
At this stage please contact Alan Noake to find out more and register your interest in the project. Selection process and further information will be announced early in 2017
